Subject: Busses are bad! China is Good!
Very nice little sneak peek (I wish there was more of this kind of thing (doing George Bush here) on the archives with different presidents, alas, this is the only thing of Nixon (as president) on here. Here he talks about Viet Nam, Russia, China, some appointments, some scandals. The recording is curiously primative though. What is the source of this?
